MY Great Escape 

Job title: Social Media and Communications Volunteer

Closing Date: 31st January 2018

Organisation: MY Great Escape

Website: www.mtgreatescape.org.uk

Description:

About us
MY Great Escape is a brand new organisation supporting survivors of domestic abuse to get out into the great outdoors, have adventures and heal. We believe that through physical challenge and the beauty of nature, survivors can heal, build confidence and self-esteem. Our first expedition takes place in April, when we'll spend 2-3 nights sleeping under the stars and literally, conquering mountains.

About the role
We're in need of a social media wizard to help grow awareness of our trips, work with supporting organisations and, crucially, recruit survivors for our adventures. As we're so new, this role would be responsible for working with our team of trustees to create a social media strategy from scratch. We'll need your input to develop and implement a communications plan, and develop our 'voice'. There will be further opportunities for writing press releases and articles and expanding our website as our work grows, should this be of interest.

About you
We're looking for someone with excellent copywriting skills and a skill for snappy one liners. Our ideal volunteer will have experience of using social media to promote and build a brand, cause or event and will be at home with WordPress websites. Some graphic design skills would be a bonus. We need around 2-4 hours of commitment per week, for at least 6 months. You will have a proactive and self motivating personality, strident feminist outlook and a good understanding of the challenges faced by survivors of Domestic Abuse. A clear interest in the outdoors is also a benefit but isn't essential, and you can be based anywhere!

We can offer
This is an amazing opportunity to develop your skills and our work, and grow your CV. In exchange for your commitment, we can offer exposure to and support with feeding in to high level strategies, lessons in project planning, career planning and professional coaching and you'd be welcome to take part in our expeditions.

Salary: Voluntary
